RENAISSANCE, MAY 2016:
East West, Fall 2015:
Inspired by travel during the Colonial era when steamer trunks were used to transport items for the home after traveling to exotic places--wares like spices, plates, silver, baskets, and hemp rope are celebrated. There are Asian-influences infusing the collection but also elements of Americana and a continuation of a love for the natural world. Many are unexpected patterns like tortoiseshell. The color palette is a bit moody with pops of color like cerulean, sky, indigo, grey, cafe, black, wheat, oxblood and splashes of vibrant citrine.
FASHION FORWARD, WINTER 2015:
Tapping into a love for fashion, history and France, they created over 10 patterns combining modern designs from Susan's fashion dress collections as a background then infused with details from 19th century iconic fashion illustrations. The patterns weave together modernity with the past. 30 pillow designs were donated to the designer's atelier space the duo decorated for the 2015 annual Housingwork's Design On A Dime showhouse charity at the Metropolitan Pavilion in NYC. This Spring, they are custom designing a collection of these patterns to be offered in Bradley-USA's new showroom making its debut at the New York Design Center at 200 Lexington Avenue. Stay tuned for details!
FIG & LEMOn, SPRING 2015:
Five fresh colored patterns - 4 fruit and vegetable-inspired toiles (ways you have not seen toile before) and modern geometric pattern, geo. Designed April 2015 for the annual Lenox Hill Neighborhood House Tabletop gala, Susan and Tamara were invited to style a table for this black-tie dinner fete serving over 500 guests in the historic Cipriani ballroom in Grand Central Station. The table was in the center of the grand ballroom and donned with a stand-out vibrant lavender and blue toile, which enhanced the evening's Garden Of Eden theme. The Fig lavender pattern channels traditional toiles but created with a freshness not usually associated with toile patterns. Four other toile patterns were created for the table as gifts for dinner guests -- tea towels, cocktail napkins and dinner napkins.
METAMORPHOSIS, SUMMER 2015:
Wielding a playfulness and sense of humor, this collection is enamored with and inspired by bugs, animals and the natural world. A detailed butterfly toile, Flutter, started the collection on the way. Stick bug came next, along with fun geometric patterns channeling faux animal motifs such as -- croc, chics and netting, and working seamlessly together. Five patterns in total with an emphasis on combining more traditional patterns with fun, unexpected geometric patterns.
